‘Opposite’ of Vantablack? Scientists create WHITEST paint ever, which reflects 95.5% of light & keeps buildings cool – RT

Engineers have created a paint capable of reflecting 95.5 percent of sunlight back into space, while keeping a building cooler than the ambient temperature, which…

In research undertaken at Purdue University, in Indiana, engineers have produced the remarkable acrylic paint. It makes use of passive radiative cooling technology, which keeps surfaces 10 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature at night and at least 1.7 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature at noon.
“It’s very counterintuitive for a surface in direct sunlight to be cooler than the temperature your local weather station reports for that area, but we’ve shown this to be possible,” said…

Scientists Found an Ancient Tectonic Plate Buried Deep Inside the Earth’s Mantle – ExtremeTech

Geologists have found the remains of a previous continental plate that had only been theorized to exist. Meet Resurrection — the latest lump of molten rock we…

Plate tectonics — the slow movement of the Earth’s continents across the globe, and their interactions with each other — is a relatively new discovery, having only been broadly accepted in the geologic community since the mid-1960s. In addition to studying the seven large plates that make up the major continents on Earth, some scientists study the remains of vanished plates that were subducted under the edge of a continent and driven down into the mantle. Now, one group studying northwest North…

Astronomers catalogue 1,000 worlds that can ‘see’ Earth – and are candidates for possible COLONIZATION – RT

Two astronomers have rethought the search for extraterrestrial intelligence by producing a ‘star map’ of exoplanets that have a direct line of sight of our planet…

Monitoring planets as they transit between an observer and their star is one of the main methods by which we Earthlings discover potentially viable exoplanets for colonization, so the thinking behind this new research is that equally advanced civilizations would use the same method to find us. 
Transits provide crucial information about a planet’s composition and atmosphere, and thus viability for hosting life.
Lisa Kaltenegger, associate professor of astronomy at Cornell’s College of Arts and Sciences,…
